: : By the way, if that title's real, I think it's cool how they went back to Raiders, considering this is probably the last movie in the series.

: I disagree. I really don't like the original title "Raiders" because it certifies Indy as a pothunter and graverobber, which he's not.
Raiders probably refers to the Nazis, not Indy himself. In the new film, who knows what 'Raiders' would mean? And by the way, in the original film Indy WAS a 'pothunter/graverobber' sort of guy. He didn't believe in religion and looked at the Ark as one big prize to be taken for the museum. By the end he changed his mind slightly. Remember how Lucas first envisioned the character? Well it's obvious he wasn't 100% pure-hearted.
